Lorenzo looking ahead after Sachsenring crash

Fiat Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo picks up latest DNF in difficult conditions in Germany

A crash in Sachsenring was less-than-ideal preparation for Jorge Lorenzo´s first time riding at Laguna Seca next week, but the Spaniard was looking on the bright side of an injury-free race in Germany in which he further improved his mental condition.

Jorge Lorenzo – DNF

`I felt good this morning because I though that I would have a chance to do a good race in the rain. On the warm-up lap however I felt that something wasn´t quite right; I didn´t have enough grip and I lost some confidence then. I made a good start and passed two riders in the first corner, but then I ran too deep and lost the places so I had to push to try to make them up again. The crash happened when I opened the gas coming out of turn four and I lost the rear. It was a pity but I didn´t hurt myself this time and I am not feeling sad for myself tonight, I just feel very bad for the team because they worked too hard all weekend for a result like this. The positive thing about today is that at each race I am feeling better in myself, even though we´re having some problems getting our package work correctly, and now I am just looking forward to racing for the very first time at Laguna.´
